Now for something completely different...
This is my first week at Acquia, and I have to admit that I'm surprised to be here. Despite my commitments of time and code to Drupal over the last couple years, I was also working full time as a scientist at a start-up that is a spin-off from the lab where I did my post-doc.
A number of my friends and family have done a bit of a double-take when I told them my plans - usually something along the lines of "but that's nothing like your current job!?". So, that's true, but I'm excited to be here. I've enjoyed programming since elementary school, and I seriously considered majoring in CS as an undergraduate.
I've learned a lot from the Drupal community and I'm looking forward to being part of Acquia and to being able to spend more time with great members of the Drupal community both here at Acquia and around the world.
